April 2016 will be busy one for holidays as the Easter Holidays. And that, of course, means the prices tend to rise too. But if you’re planning a holiday to Mexico in April 2016 either during the holidays with the kids or after the holidays, our handy guide here is designed to let you know what to expect in terms of the weather and what’s on.
Weather in Mexico in April
The weather in April is great for holidays to Mexico. Of course, temperatures and rainfall vary from place to place across Mexico, but here’s an idea of what to expect in terms of temperature and rainfall in various parts of the country.
So, on the whole, the weather in Mexico in April is nice and hot and relatively dry too. April is amongst the driest months of the year across the whole country. It’s a great getaway when the weather back home not be quite what the sun worshipers want. And it’s ideal for taking advantage of the beautiful white sand beaches, the stunning resort pools and for getting out and seeing the sights as well.
What’s On in Mexico in April 2018?
A big consideration about when I go on holiday to Mexico is what might be on while I’m there. As a holidaymaker, I typically enjoy taking in local festivals or celebrations where possible. So here’s what to expect if you are considering Mexico holidays in April 2018:
- As a largely Catholic country, it will come as no surprise to you that Mexicans celebrate Easter. In fact, there’s a week of celebration known as ‘Holy Week,’ during the Easter festivities. Holy week begins on Palm Sunday. It’s often a period during which locals have time off work. Outside of the tourist industry, many businesses close down between Palm Sunday and Easter Sunday (and some even have the week after off). It doesn’t negatively impact the tourist industry. If you’re on holiday in Mexico in April, you’ll still be serviced as the tourist industry by no means stops operating!
- The Akumal Comedy Festival is well located in Quintana Roo for those taking April Mexico holidays in Cancun, Playa del Carmen, Cozumel and other parts of the Riviera Maya. This is a few days of laughter, essentially. There’ll be a host of events and this is a great way to spend some time on your holiday.
- Daylight savings time comes into effect on the first Sunday in April, so it will mean longer days for holidaymakers
- The Feria Nacional de San Marcos is a big festival that takes place annually in the town of San marcos (not too far away for those on holiday in Acapulco). This is a huge festival and often has a fairground. It’s a celebration of culture. Some holidaymakers will prefer to steer clear of some events (like bullfighting) but there’s a good party atmosphere on the whole and it’s something I’d recommend to those taking a holiday to Acapulco in April 2018.
There’s plenty going on to enjoy. Those who like to immerse themselves in the local religious practices and culture really should make the most of Holy Week when there are likely to be religious events taking place during the course of the week all over the country.
